Mr. Right


(out of 5)

Ensemble romantic comedy about a group of gay male friends and one woman, all with their own personal complications.  One couple is a successful visual artist whose handsome boyfriend is in it for the gifts, another is a television producer and aspiring actor who are undone by the latter’s desire to be taken seriously, a third are a single father and a famous actor who are threatened by the one’s man prioritizing his coldly unlikeable daughter.  The lady friend among the group has just started dating a handsome bloke but spends the entire time paranoid that he might be gay too, but what actually makes this film terrifically strange is that, despite good performances and a few good sequences, it messily bounces all over the place and hints at payoffs that never actually happen.  For a comedy it is rarely funny, while many of its situations are too contrived to say that it hits the spot in a particularly poignant way, leaving a low-budget indie that is barely dressed and hardly goes anywhere.
